Koch (Ryzovy nakyp, Rice pudding)

Koch (Ryzovy nakyp, Rice pudding)


  • 2 cups rice
  • 1 qt. milk
  • A "pinch" of salt
  • 1 ¼ cups butter
  • ¾ cup of caster sugar
  • Grated lemon rind
  • 4 egg yolks
  • Raisins
  • Whites from 4 eggs


Put milk in a saucepan and slowly bring to a boil

Wash rice and place in a saucepan in which milk has slowly boiled

Cook until rice has absorbed all milk

Let rice mixture cool

Mix butter, sugar yolks until creamy

Add lemon rind and salt to taste

Beat egg whites

Mix cooked rice into creamed butter, add raisins and fold in egg whites

Put the mixture into a casserole dish greased with butter and sprinkled with breadcrumbs (if desired)

Bake for approximately 40 minutes in slow oven (320 – 355 F)

Comments: You can use vanilla essence instead of lemon rind, if you prefer. S Some people also put a layer of sliced apples or some other fruit in the middle of the mixture before baking.
